Mark Strong and Zachary Levi Clash in New “Shazam” Leak

Yet another video has been leaked from the set of the DC Extended Universe’s upcoming film Shazam, this one showing star Zachary Levi and villain Mark Strong doing battle.

Shazam is about a teenage boy named Billy Batson who has the power to transform into a superpowered adult whenever he says the magical word “Shazam!” Levi, best known as Flynn Rider from Tangled and Fandral from the Thor movies, plays his superhero persona, while his “normal” form is being played by Asher Angel of Disney Channel’s Andi Mack.

In the clip, which is only 19 seconds long, we see Levi’s Shazam/Captain Marvel laying on top of a cop car while Strong, playing the supervillain Doctor Sivana, walks menacingly toward him. Some cops approach, only to be thrown back with a wave of Strong/Sivana’s hand. (Obviously they’re throwing themselves back, but we’ll probably get some sort of special effects in the actual film.) Levi, meanwhile, rolls off the car and gets back up, ready to fight.

In the background we can see a bus, which seems to tie this scene into another that was released the day before this one. In that clip, Levi’s superhero seemed to be stopping an out-of-control bus and then helping its passengers off, before doing a little victory dance to celebrate his successful heroism. Presumably in the final cut will show the bus’ danger having been caused by Doctor Sivana.

We have yet to get any official images from the Shazam set, which only began production last month, but the numerous leaks are giving a good idea of what’s in store for the World’s Mightiest Mortal. The final production, however, will not be in theaters until April 5, 2019.
